What is this Strangefish that’s scuttled up to us after some twelve years out in the cold? Putting themselves front and centre under The Spotlight Effect, the UK progsters return with their first new album since 2006’s Fortune Telling and having added bassist Carl Howard and co-vocalist Jo Whittaker to their original quartet of Steve Taylor (vocals), Paul O’Neill (keys), Dave Whittaker (drums) and the enigmatically (but not that enigmatically) named Bob, on guitar.
Twelve years away from the scene is a long time in anyone’s book and it would be fair to suggest that one of the key changes to the world that’s occurred in the meantime is what appears to be on the mind of Strangefish…

This single-CD compilation doesn't do too much more than scratch the surface of the band's sound at its most popular points, but it does do one thing that no prior Moody Blues compilation ever did – it includes "Go Now," which, as the notes point out, is still the group's top-charting single in England. What it doesn't do is get "Go Now" in really good sound (no one seems to have a proper master source) or include their even better follow-up single, "From the Bottom of My Heart." Still, this body of work is pleasing and, thanks to its extension back to the original lineup, even a little bit informative, and it was the first Moody Blues compilation to be mastered in 20-bit audio.

Genre: Progressive/Psychedelic Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Kscope (KSCOPE382)

Remastered in 2015 by Steven Wilson. Porcupine Tree's debut is really one big in-joke, which actually makes for a better reason to record something that pretends to be profoundly deep through and through. As released, it doesn't make mention of the tracks' origins as the supposed product of a mysterious cult psych/prog rock band, but the packaging and artwork (even the fonts) would make the Dukes of Stratosphear proud. Steven Wilson's singing is noticeably higher at points than it would be in later years - chalk it up to his relative youth or a desire to sound appropriately wispy (or on the lovely "Nine Cats," like David Gilmour)…

Genre: Progressive Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Universal Music (UICY-9116)

This excellent recording is largely considered to be Le Orme's magnum opus. The trio, comprised of Aldo Tagliapietra (vocals, bass, guitar), Toni Pagliuca (organ/Mellotron, piano), and Michi Dei Rossi (drums), produced some of the best Italian progressive rock ever recorded. Influenced by Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Genesis, the band forged their own unique blend of sophisticated symphonic prog rock. Tagliapietra's vocals give the music an ethereal quality, and he actually sounds quite a bit like Sting (or the other way around). Their high level of musicianship is evident on "Sospesi Nell 'Incredibile," but the focus is more on mood, song structure, and texture…

This box set devoted to Pink Floyd was somewhat frustrating at the time of its release. Priced at over 100 dollars, it included nine CDs drawn equally from their EMI and Columbia Records, starting with their second album, A Saucerful of Secrets. That seemed to confuse a lot of people who regard that transitional album as a lot less important and alluring than its predecessor, Piper at the Gates of Dawn…

In 1993, Pete Townshend issued his fourth true studio solo album for Atco (not counting a live album, a couple of demo collections, and a collaboration with Ronnie Lane), entitled Psychoderelict. Perhaps best known for his conceptually based works (the Who's Tommy, Quadrophenia, etc.), Townshend did indeed thread a storyline throughout the album, which appeared to be the tale of an aging rock star. Psychoderelict includes Townshend's hardest-rocking songs since his 1980 solo album, Empty Glass, such as "English Boy" and "Let's Get Pretentious." Three instrumental tracks paying tribute to Townshend's spiritual mentor…

Psychedelic Rock | Cleopatra Records #CLP2218

The mighty Fudge is back with their heaviest album to date, a collection of brilliant reworkings of classic tracks from that pivotal year in music 1967! These classic rock icons are keeping the spirit of real rock music alive with their own versions of The Box Tops The Letter, Procol Harum s Whiter Shade Of Pale, The Who s I Can See For Miles, Spencer Davis Group's Gimme Some Lovin and lots more! Vanilla Fudge was one of the few American links between psychedelia and what soon became heavy metal. While the band did record original material, they were best-known for their loud, heavy, slowed-down arrangements of contemporary pop songs, blowing them up to epic proportions and bathing them in a trippy, distorted haze. Originally, Vanilla Fudge was a blue-eyed soul cover band called the Electric Pigeons, who formed in Long Island, New York, in 1965.

Remastered in 2016 by Steven Wilson. Though Porcupine Tree's permanent lineup was in place by the time Sky Moves Sideways was complete, it was actually a combination of old and new, with a number of tracks once again done by Wilson on his own. Regardless of the provenance of one song or another, though, it was another fine release under the Porcupine Tree name, continuing the excellence of Up the Downstair while achieving a new liquid sense of drama and overall flow. Barbieri's keyboard skills alone made for a wonderful addition to the ranks, easily capturing the slow sense of unfolding atmosphere and elegance combined from earlier Porcupine Tree work while adding his own touches here and there, a touch of playfulness and improvisation…

Accompanied by Alain Burger, this musician from Eastern France keeps us glad with his delicate instrumental music, and compositions that are catchy as ever. His picturesque and intimate Progressive rock is here as beautiful as it can get, a little in the style of Jean-Pascal Boffo's works. Recorded in 2001, "Memories" is sometimes jazz-rock, at times a little more rock… Don't be a mere follower, just let this excellent guitarist's album take you away.

The band Kladivo Konj in Voda were a mostly acoustic band featuring acid-tinged Slovenian folk-rock, active from the late seventies through 1983 in the former Yugoslavia. Guitarist Danijel Bedrac reformed the group for a few years in the late nineties, but with a completely different lineup and electric instruments. Their first recording 'Vidov Ples' is the best representation of their progressive folk sound.

There's no better description for The Id than the one stated by the members of this group, a Prog band placed across the Northern hemisphere. And that's because the three original members leave in different countries, Peter Albrektsen hails from Toronto, Canada and plays guitar, drums and keyboards, Tim Pepper is an Englishman from Snodland, Kent, responsible for the lead vocals, keyboards and drum programming, while Bill Sjulin from Cincinatti, Ohio not only is a multi-instrumentalist, but holds some knowledge on music production. At one point keyboardist Jaime Regadas was also among the involved members…
